Berke tweets support for Bredesen in Senate race

Blackburn announced her candidacy for the Senate in early October.

Tennessee is a Republican state and will likely stay one for a while, Gov. Bill Haslam said Thursday in reference to former Gov. Phil Bredesen, a Democrat, entering the U.S. Senate race for Sen.

He said in a video posted on his campaign website, "I have the right kind of experience and the actual track record that it will take to start working across party lines to fix the mess in Washington and bring common sense back to our government".

"I think Tennessee is still a Republican state, but I think any Republican should always go into a race thinking 'I have to win a primary and I have to win a general, ' and run the race accordingly", said the Knoxville Republican.

Warren said the parents would have immunity - that nothing the Donaldson's would say could be used against them. Howell Donaldson III, 24, is facing four counts of first degree murder in the Seminole Heights killings.

"We all know Washington is broken", he said in his statement.

Former Nashville lawyer and Iraq War vet James Mackler is the only other announced candidate for the Democratic nomination to the U.S. Senate seat soon to be vacated by Republican Bob Corker. Before that, he served as mayor of Nashville from 1991 to 1999. A recent Middle Tenessee State University poll shows that Bredesen is viewed nearly exactly as favorably in the state as Republican front runner Rep. Marsha Blackburn, and much more favorably than all the other potential Republican candidates.

National Democrats have courted Bredesen for months to run, seeing him as their best - and perhaps only - chance to win the seat in a state where President Trump won by 26 percentage points.

Bredesen was Nashville mayor when he earned the Democratic gubernatorial in 1994.
